Editorial Reviews

Take a trip into the Aussie wilderness and meet the McGregor family of Snowy River. This thrilling western adventure, set in 19th century Australia, introduced the world to a new breed of cowboy from the land down under. Based on the famous poem "Man From Snowy River" by Banjo Paterson, this touching family series embodies the traditional virtues of honor, courage and loyalty. Starring Hugh Jackman and Guy Pearce.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit of false advertising May 20, 2007
Format:DVD
I bought this dvd because I enjoyed the Snowy River movies, and I like Guy Pearce and Hugh Jackman, so I figured, "Why not?"

The DVD consists of 3 episodes of the series set in Australia - The McGregor Saga - which, I gather, was created following the success of the Snowy River movies. Those 3 episodes are "Comeback", "The Grand Opening", and "Black Sheep". While I enjoyed the episodes quite a bit, it was a bit like jumping into the middle of something with little context, because of the nature of it being a TV series and these episodes not being the first. I'd like to see more. But, the thing that really got to me is that Guy Pearce doesn't appear ONCE in any of the three episodes. His character is talked about, but is evidently 'away' for the period of these three episodes. I guess they are trying to capitalize on his more recent success, but I don't care for the misleading tactics. Hugh Jackman, of course, is great as always.

All of that said, I would recommend this to anyone interested in good family viewing (as long as their heart is not set on seeing Guy Pearce). It's like an updated, less corny Bonanza, set in Australia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snowy River: Macgregor Saga March 31, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movie was great. It's an Austrailan Western, which features a young

Hugh Jackman. If you are a western or Hugh Jackman lover, this is the perfect movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shipped quickly and in good condition January 2, 2008
Format:DVD
The item shipped quickly and was in good condition. Too bad there aren't many more episodes on the disks - only Three doesn't seem like an awful lot. But it was worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Guy Pearce is not in this volume! January 18, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a fun little show if you liked the series of Lonesome Dove or Little House on the Prairie. There are only three episodes on the volume, but I enjoyed them, especially seeing a young Hugh Jackman. But Guy Pearce, who is on the front of the box and listed as one of the main stars, is not in any of the three episodes. I took one star off for the false advertising.

I repeat what others say that there should be more episodes of this series available. Here you have three episodes that feature Hugh Jackman before his rise through X-Men and Swordfish and Australia.

You have the McGregor clan living where you were left off with the Snowy River movies, children, dad is getting older, though not any less vigorous. Jackman comes back home after years away. He is a friend of the family so, he is not fully tied in with them. You can get caught up pretty fast with the first episode, Comeback, because Jackman is told about the whole McGregor clan and what they are doing.

In The Grand Opening, we have the family pitching in to help someone in their community while facing a trial of their own. In Black Sheep, you will see two stories in one, both very interesting with their own message.

If the rest of the series was like this, it would be interesting to find the whole series available on DVD eventually. Maybe one or another station will air these shows some time creating a market for them. As already mentioned, Guy Pearce (The Time Machine) does not appear in any of the three episodes.

Great action, good story line, morals to the story and morals being mentioned and even taught. TV in the USA needs more like these to give people a choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugh Jackman's Short Run on the Series September 9, 2012
Format:DVD
Here is another three episode release of Snow River: The McGregor Saga, a western filmed in Australia, but aired in the USA on the former Family Channel, aka ABC Family. Guy Pearce who plays Rob McGregor was busy filming a movie, so a young unknown named Hugh Jackman was written onto the series for five episodes, who happens to take a shine to Rob's so-called girlfriend.

The Episodes are:

Comeback

The Grand Opening

Black Sheep

Even thought I would prefer a complete season release instead of a handful of episodes, I still enjoyed the DVD as I only paid five dollars for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars All episodes are available on DVD November 16, 2011
Format:DVD
Although the TV series was known in the US as Snowy River, the McGregor Saga, here in Australia it was called The Man From Snowy River and all the episodes are on DVD. I note the confusion about Guy's absence during the episodes that are on this specific DVD. The reason he was absent in these episodes at the time was because Hugh was brought in to replace Guy while he was filming LA Confidential in the US. Guy does return in later episodes and Hugh leaves. My guess is the cover of the DVD was probably used on all episodes of the series and it wasn't meant to mislead. I can't answer why the US version only showed 3 episodes on DVD. If you can get hold of the other DVDs, it is highly recommended family viewing with beautiful scenery. It was filmed around Mansfield in Victoria, beautiful scenic area of Australia.

I've seen most of Hugh Jackman's work, but missed this mini-series, so I'm thrilled to add it to my collection.
